Republicans will introduce last-ditch Obamacare repeal effort Wednesday

Via Billy


Four Senate Republicans will introduce legislation Wednesday that would provide the Senate with a last-ditch opportunity to repeal and replace Obamacare before a Sept. 30 deadline.

Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Dean Heller of Nevada have attracted a fourth GOP sponsor, Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, to a measure that would allow states to decide the fate of Obamacare.

The bill would provide the $1.2 trillion for Obamacare's Medicaid expansion and tax credits to states in an attempt to get the states to develop their own healthcare programs. The four lawmakers announced they will introduce the legislation on Wednesday and will be joined by former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa.
